When it comes to the changes in wording for pregnancy and breastfeeding I really would like to know how many people who don't identify as women or mothers actually go through those experiences!?!? Because it has to be completely minimal surely because if you have problems with identifying as a woman surely by the time you have gone through everything you do to get to the point of giving birth you must have to embrace being a woman because otherwise you've (IMO) missed the point entirely!?!

I was a LLLGB leader for many years - 1990s - I'm horrified by their recent activities - but... to be fair, the Anglicised version of 'The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding', was simply named 'The Art of Breastfeeding' - but in those days, there was no confusion. So - have they re-written the entire book and excluded the word woman? Surely not?
